Thought I'd share a few pictures of an antique smoker that I have.  I have never seen another one like it.  If you have, please let me know.

Neat pics! And it does look OLD. I'm always amused by the "antique" smokers I see on ebay that are probably less than 10 years old but because they are rust-covered they are advertised as "vintage."

I have no idea how old it is,  I remember somebody gave it to my dad about 30 years ago.

You are so correct about the smokers on eBay.   I've been watching them for a while myself,  and your lucky to see 1 out of 100 that are true antiques.
